"Stroget" Strøget Tip by ginte

Strøget, Copenhagen: 46 reviews and 70 photos

  Wonderful Stroget
by ginte

Stroget is Europe's longest city pedestrian street. It goes its way through Copenhagen's old inner city, with shops full of everything you need: clothes, souvenirs, jewelry, cafes, restaurants, fashion shops etc. It was one of the first streets in the world to be turned into a pedestrian street, in 1962.

You'll always find there singing, dancing or acting people, nice buildings through your way, many people and of course - something special :-) I even can't count how many times I've passed through it. Sometimes it's great for shopping, as you can find almost all the shops you need. Sometimes it's nice just to walk through without any rush, watch the people and just enjoy the atmosphere.

And I've read one funny comment of one guy in the Internet about the Stroget. He was so excited to see all these 'models' (Danish girls) walking in Stroget forwards and backwards, forwards and backwards... Hahahaha:-) Maybe this could be a hint for the guys coming to Copenhagen.

But... you won't find the name
Stroget on the street signs or on citymaps. But if you ask a Copenhagener where to find Stroget, you will probably get a clear answer.

Directions: Both ends terminate in large squares, east in Kogens Nytorv and west in Radhuspladsen (The City Hall Square)
